SIGNS OF AGE

1.
I wrote a note
to remind me
to remind you
of that thing
you didn’t want
to forget, but
I can’t remember
where I put it.
Have you seen it?

2.
I am rapidly
approaching that point
when counting black hairs
on my head is easier
then counting years.

3.
This year I finally
remembered your birthday, now
if I could only think
of your name.

4.
In the mall last week
I walked excitedly
into “The Body Shoppe”
only to find they
don’t sell replacement parts.
